Johnson embarks,Author Kirk Wallace Johnson’s prose glitters like the tropical bird feathers he describes in this story of a 20-year-old American flautist’s theft of some $250,000 worth of bird skins. One of the summer’s most talked about books in the US, the tale is rich with detail and colour. Johnson embarks on a high-speed tour of Victorian fashions, the secretive world of salmon-fly-tying and environmental degradation-all in pursuit of a charismatic and unusually wily villain. THE FEATHER THIEF: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the CenturyThe rare feathers belong to the “skins”-dead birds with their innards removed but feathers intact-stored in the Natural History Museum of Tring, a small town in Hertfordshire, about 44 miles northwest of London. The skins are rare for three reasons. They belong to endangered species of birds. A number of those that were stolen belonged to birds that had been caught, collected and tagged from South America and the Malay Archipelago at great personal peril by 19th century biologist Alfred Russel Wallace, whose ideas closely paralleled those of Darwin’s. But the third reason is the most extraordinary. The beautiful plumage of these dead birds is as precious as rare gems for an international group of artisans who create ornamental fishing lures. Called “flies”, these tiny, jewel-like creations are built around fish hooks and require hours of painstaking effort behind a magnifying glass to complete. The origin of the craft is the sport of fly-fishing, but creating lures with no function other than their own beauty is what captivated an exceptionally gifted young flautist called Edwin Rist. In 1999, when he was only 11 and expecting to pursue a career in music, he happened to watch an instructional video on television about fly-tying. He became entranced. By 14, he was being hailed as a master of the craft. It would become an obsession which, combined with his ambitions as a world-class flute player, warped his moral compass. The reason he stole the precious bird skins was to sell them and buy himself an exceptionally fine flute.advertisementIn a book that recalls Susan Orlean’s blockbuster The Orchid Thief, Johnson presents this complex story like a skilled angler. The brightly coloured lure is Rist, while we are the salmon, kept on the hook by the fine, taut line of the author’s desire to expose the truth behind the tale. Not just the “how” of the theft but also why we should care about it.Accompanying the text is an album of photographs. Amongst them we see the handsome young criminal, an array of the tiny enticing fishing “flies” and a selection of the birds whose gorgeous plumage leads humans astray.last_img read more

US unemployment rate falls to 5year low of 7 per cent as

US unemployment rate falls to 5-year low of 7 per cent as employers add 203,000 jobs WASHINGTON – The U.S. job market has been recovering fitfully for three years. Now, it’s starting to show consistency.Employers added 203,000 jobs in November, and the unemployment rate fell to 7 per cent, a five-year low. Stock investors were heartened by the news. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 180 points in late-afternoon trading.The economy added an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November, up sharply from 159,000 a month from April through July. The robust gain suggested that the economy will begin to accelerate. As more employers step up hiring, more people have money to spend to drive the economy.The job market has shown signs of strengthening at other times since the recession ended 4 1/2 years ago, only to weaken and discourage hopes. Some economists say this time, employers may have enough confidence in the economy and consumer demand to step up hiring. A sturdier job market would, in turn, accelerate Americans’ spending and energize economic growth.“It’s hinting very, very strongly that the economy is starting to ramp up, that growth is getting better, that businesses are hiring,” said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors.The job growth has also fueled speculation that the Federal Reserve will scale back its economic stimulus when it meets later this month.It “gives the Fed all the evidence it needs to begin tapering its asset purchases at the next … meeting,” said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics.The unemployment rate has fallen nearly a full percentage point since the Fed began buying bonds in September 2012 and has reached 7 per cent earlier than most analysts had expected.In June, Chairman Ben Bernanke had suggested that the Fed would end its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases after the unemployment rate reached 7 per cent. The Fed’s bond purchases have been intended to keep borrowing rates low.Bernanke later backed away from the 7 per cent target. He cautioned that the Fed would weigh numerous economic factors in any decision it makes about its bond purchases. Many economists still think the Fed won’t begin to cut back until January or later.In addition to the solid job gain and the drop in unemployment, Friday’s report offered other encouraging signs:— Higher-paying industries are adding more jobs. Manufacturers added 27,000 jobs, the most since March 2012. Construction companies added 17,000. The two industries have created a combined 113,000 jobs over the past four months.— Hourly wages are up. The average rose 4 cents in November to $24.15. It’s risen just 2 per cent in the past year. But that’s ahead of inflation: Consumer prices are up only 0.9 per cent in that time.— Employers are giving their workers more hours: The average work week rose to 34.5 hours from 34.4. A rule of thumb among economists is that a one-tenth hourly increase in the work week is equivalent to adding 300,000 jobs.— Hiring was broad-based. In addition to higher-paying industries, retailers added 22,300 jobs, restaurants, bars and hotels 20,800. Education and health care added 40,000. And after years of cutbacks, state and local governments are hiring again. In November, governments at all levels combined added 7,000 jobs.Still, the report contained some sour notes: Many Americans are still avoiding the job market, neither working nor looking for work. That’s one reason the unemployment rate has fallen in recent months. The percentage of adults either working or searching for jobs remains near a 35-year low.And America’s long-term unemployed are still struggling. More than 4 million people have been out of work for six months or longer. That figure was essentially unchanged in November. By contrast, the number of people who have been unemployed for less than six months fell last month.Among companies that are ramping up hiring is Eat24, which handles online restaurant deliveries. Eat24, based in San Francisco, expects this month to hire 10 to 15 salespeople, mobile application developers and data analysts, on top of its 150-person workforce.“The economy is picking up a little bit,” said Amir Eisenstein, the chief marketing officer. “In the last couple of years, the mobile market has boomed.”The steady decline in unemployment, from a high of 10 per cent four years ago, is welcome news for the White House. But Jason Furman, President Barack Obama’s top economic adviser, said the plight of the long-term unemployed points to the need to extend emergency unemployment benefits.About 1.3 million people who’ve been out of work for six months or more will lose unemployment aid if a 5-year-old program to provide extra benefits expires on Dec. 28. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the cost of an extension at $25 billion. Some Republicans on the Hill have balked at the cost.But on Thursday, House GOP leader John Boehner said he was willing to consider extending the program.Friday’s jobs report follows other positive news. The economy expanded at an annual rate of 3.6 per cent in the July-September quarter, the fastest growth since early 2012, though nearly half that gain came from businesses rebuilding stockpiles. Consumer spending grew at its slowest pace since late 2009.But if hiring continues at its current pace, a virtuous cycle will start to build: More jobs typically lead to more pay, more spending and faster growth.That said, more higher-paying jobs are needed to sustain the economy’s momentum. Roughly half the jobs that were added in the six months through October were in four low-wage industries: retail; hotels, restaurants and entertainment; temp jobs; and home health care workers.Consumers have been willing to spend on big-ticket items. Autos sold in November at their best pace in seven years, according to Autodata Corp. New-home sales in October bounced back from a summer downturn.But early reports on holiday shopping have been disappointing. The National Retail Federation said sales during the Thanksgiving weekend — probably the most important stretch for retailers — fell for the first time since the group began keeping track in 2006.___AP Economics Writer Josh Boak and AP Writer Jim Kuhnhenn contributed to this report.___Follow Chris Rugaber on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/ChrisRugaber by Christopher S.

Oxford explosion One person remains missing after pregnant woman hurt in huge

first_imgBut a statement released by SGN, a gas distribution network company for the Oxford area, said: “Following reports of an explosion in the Osney Lane and Gibbs Crescent area of Oxford, our engineers joined the emergency services on site this evening.”While it’s too early to speculate as to what has happened, we have confirmed there is no mains gas supply to the property affected.” Police confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that one person remained missing. Two people were treated for minor injuries, including a pregnant woman who was taken to hospital at around 5pm.The blast destroyed the three-storey block, owned by housing association A2Dominion, and caused several nearby boats in the marina to catch fire.Several surrounding properties were evacuated as a safety precaution and residents were being assisted with accommodation locally by the council.A fireball could be seen coming from the remains of the flats as huge flames and plumes of smoke were caught on camera. Witness Alexander Hammonds, 43, who lives nearby, took dramatic pictures of the aftermath of the explosion.He said: “I was in my living room when I heard a massive double bang. Personally I thought a lorry had overturned, so I looked out the window and saw massive plumes of smoke.”I walked over the footbridge and from there I could see the flames from above the trees.”I just started using my camera, I got stupidly close. I just went in, got as many photos as I could then left because I could hear all the sirens.”I could smell all the furniture burning. I saw the tarpaulin of a boat on fire.”There were a lot of sounds coming from the fire which was making me really nervous because it was an explosion and I didn’t want to be around if there was another one.” It is not known what caused the blast that ripped through the building, leading to its collapse A fire at a block of flats in Oxford which left at least two people injured Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Two fiveyearold girls swept out to sea on blowup swan after RNLI

The “terrified” girls ended up nearly half a mile out in the Bristol Channel before they were rescued by lifeboats and a coastguard helicopter.  Sarah Gurr, one of their parents, wrote on Facebook: “We will forever be grateful to the RNLI and the rescue helicopter for saving our girls today xxx They were absolutely terrified.”Minehead RNLI have launched a probe to find out why no red warning flag was flying to indicate there was an offshore wind at the time.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Two five-year-old girls were swept out to sea on a blow-up swan after the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) warned parents about potentially “deadly” inflatable floats.The children were sat on the plastic bird in the shallows at Minehead, Somerset, when a strong gust of wind pushed them offshore at 3.30pm on Saturday. The father of one of the girl had been holding a line attached to the float, but it slipped through his hands and blew out of his reach before he had time to react.Volunteer lifeboat helm Phil Sanderson said: “He waded into the water and tried to swim out to them but the thing was just moving too quickly and he couldn’t get near it.”He did exactly the right thing: he shouted to the girls to stay on the inflatable and then the family dialled 999.” The scare came as people basked in blazing sunshine across the southeast. Temperatures topped 28C on Sunday – the hottest day of the year so far – in Norfolk and Suffolk, though this week is expected to be cooler.  HM Coastguard (HMC) has previously issued a warning that inflatables “are not suitable for use in the sea”.Last year HMC operations controller Piers Stanbury said: “Inflatables really should only be used in swimming pools, not at the coast where they can quickly go from being fun to being potentially deadly.” read more

Afterwards the raiders left her tied to a bedpost in an abandoned house with her baby.It is the State’s case that Jonathan Gill (35) was one of a group of five who were involved in holding the family hostage in their own Co Louth home before moving them to a shed on a farmyard in Swords.Mr Gill of Malahide Road, Swords, Dublin has pleaded not guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to falsely imprisoning Warren Nawn, Jean Marie Nawn and their baby in Drogheda between 1 August and 2 August, 2011.Ms Nawn told Vincent Heneghan SC, prosecuting, that she was in the living room with the baby late on the Monday evening when Mr Nawn opened the door to an armed man who had his face covered.Two men entered the house and tied the couple up. One of them asked Ms Nawn what she was watching on television. When she replied that it was a Liverpool match he shouted “don’t fucking lie to me.”He also told her “I’ll blow your fucking head off, I’ll shoot you.” He said she would also be shot if anyone called at the door.Ms Nawn said she heard one of the raiders try to make a phone call and say “There’s no signal, maybe they’re coming over the border.”She heard one of them tell Mr Nawn “You better comply or we’ll blow your girlfriend’s and your baby’s head off.” She said another told her she and Mr Nawn would have to try for another baby.Ms Nawn said other raiders arrived and that one of them seemed older and had a husky voice.

During this time the baby started trying and a raider said “shut that fucking baby up.”They cut the ties on Ms Nawn’s hands so she could comfort the child. She said that during the journey she could hear Mr Nawn in the boot struggling to breathe.The family was held overnight before Mr Nawn was sent to An Post in the morning to retrieve the money. Ms Nawn told him to do whatever they asked as he was taken away. He replied that he only cared about their safety.She and the baby were left with two of the raiders. At one stage she was told to ring Mr Nawn’s manager and tell him to comply with the directions and that they were being held at gunpoint. It was then that she was beaten with the gun.In the early afternoon she was tied loosely to a cast iron bed frame in a derelict house with the baby beside her. She waited for 15 minutes before freeing herself and learning the raiders had fled.Ms Nawn then ran up the road to the IBM factory in Swords where she was picked up by gardaí.The trial continues before Judge Elma Sheahan and a jury of five women and seven men. It is expected to last four weeks.Comments have been turned off as this case is before the courts.Read: Tiger kidnap victim was threatened with rape if her husband didn’t comply with orders, court hears Mar 10th 2017, 8:20 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

The police picked him up three years ago on suspicion and broke one of his ankles. They also shot him and the bullet  remains lodged near his stomach.“I do not know why they picked me up.

Kushner denies colluding with Moscow

first_imgSenior Advisor to the US President Jared Kushner makes a statement from at the White House after being interviewed by the Senate Intelligence Committee in Washington. Photo: AFPDonald Trump’s son-in-law and top White House advisor Jared Kushner denied colluding with Moscow to sway the 2016 election Monday, insisting a string of undisclosed meetings with Russian officials were “proper.”“Let me be very clear—I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign who did so,” Kushner said after he testified before a congressional inquiry.The normally camera-shy presidential aide said contacts with then Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, a Russian financier and a Russian lawyer—who offered dirt on his father-in-law’s campaign rival Hillary Clinton—were all above board.“The record and documents I have voluntarily provided will show that all of my actions were proper and occurred in the normal course of events of a very unique campaign.”Kushner spent more than two hours Monday appearing before Senate investigators probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election.Both houses of Congress and the Justice Department are investigating whether Trump campaign officials colluded in that effort—which the CIA says was approved by President Vladimir Putin.The sprawling probe has plagued and infuriated the White House since Trump took office, with many influential members of his team having failed to report their contacts with Russian officials.Speaking on his return to the White House—where he is a senior advisor to the president—Kushner said he has not “relied” on Russian funds for his business.He also went on the offensive, echoing Trump’s claim that the investigations are an effort by Democrats to explain away a shock election loss.“Donald Trump had a better message and ran a smarter campaign, and that is why he won,” said Kushner, a former campaign aide.The statement was the first time the reticent Kushner—who is married to Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka—publicly explained his contacts with Russian officials.Kushner is scheduled to appear before a House panel on Tuesday.Special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller is leading a broad investigation into possible collusion. The House and Senate, however, have organized separate probes.A ‘waste of time’The 36-year-old Kushner has faced scrutiny for not disclosing meetings and for taking part in talks with Kremlin-connected Russians along with Trump’s son Donald Jr.In an 11-page written statement, Kushner dismissed the June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya—which Donald Jr had taken hoping to get incriminating information on Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton—as a “waste of time.”During the meeting, he recalled emailing an assistant: “Can u pls call me on my cell? Need excuse to get out of meeting.”Kushner also acknowledged a brief meeting with Kislyak in April 2016 — when Trump himself also briefly met the ambassador—and another during his father-in-law’s transition.That second meeting was also attended by Michael Flynn, who became Trump’s national security adviser but was quickly ousted over his contacts with the Russian ambassador.“I stated our desire for a fresh start in relations,” Kushner said of the sit-down, saying he asked Kislyak who had direct lines to Russian President Vladimir Putin and was open for dialogue.“The fact that I was asking about ways to start a dialogue after Election Day should of course be viewed as strong evidence that I was not aware of one that existed before Election Day.”Kushner emphasized that he “did not suggest an ongoing secret form of communication for then or for when the administration took office.”He said Kislyak recommended meeting with banker Sergey Gorkov—“someone with a direct line to the Russian President who could give insight into how Putin was viewing the new administration and best ways to work together.”Fresh sanctionsKushner said there was no mention of sanctions in his talks with both Kislyak and Gorkov.The topic has made recent headlines as Congress prepares to approve fresh punitive measures against Moscow.The Senate overwhelmingly passed new sanctions in mid-June, and after reaching an agreement, the House is due to vote Tuesday on a bill targeting Russia over the suspected campaign meddling as well as its 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.Democrat Ron Wyden, a member of the committee that questioned Kushner, said his statement raised “far more questions than it answers” and should not be merely accepted as “the whole truth.”“Kushner has repeatedly concealed information about his personal finances and meetings with foreign officials,” said Wyden.President Trump watched his son-in-law and believed he “did a good job,” according to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.Donald Trump Jr and Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign director, are currently negotiating with the Senate Judiciary Committee about when they will appear to give their version of events.last_img read more

Petpresso learns your cat’s habits, then sends notifications when it detects unusual behavior.“It all [began] when my cat was starting to gain weight,” Petpresso inventor Javier Castro said in a statement. “I needed something to help me take care of him, but the cat feeders [were] not exactly what I was looking for, so why not [create] a smart device for cats?”The machine has two chambers—one for food and one for water—as well as an LCD panel and a pair of buttons for manual adjustments. A mobile app for iOS and Android, meanwhile, makes it easy to stay in the know while on the go.Stay in the know while on the go (via Petpresso)Available for a super-early-bird price of €169 ($209), Petpresso is expected for delivery anywhere in the world in February. For €209 ($258), you can customize the device with the name of your cat.Since it launched Tuesday on Kickstarter, Petpresso has already collected €1,919 ($2,369) from 14 backers, quickly pushing the firm toward its €12,500 ($15,430) goal.The all-or-nothing project will only be funded if it reaches its target by April 26.“Petpresso will finally allow cat owners to feel like they can really be sure their cats are doing well even when they’re not home for a few days,” CEO Daniel Morales said.last_img read more

The Fabius MRI is designed for use with 1.5T and 3.0T MRI systems. An integrated Teslameter provides an acoustic alarm if the Fabius MRI is positioned within a field-strength greater than 40mTesla (400 Gauss). The Fabius MRI employs the same user interface as Dräger’s Fabius GS, Fabius Tiro and Apollo machines, creating a uniform and consistent interface for the anesthesia provider wherever anesthesia is required. The size of the MRI system often requires the anesthesia provider to be outside the room or some distance away from the device during an examination. To accommodate this, the company said additional optical alarm displays (LEDs) at the top of the system provide visual indication for all alarm conditions for the safety of the patient in this specialized environment. Dräger said the Fabius MRI has the same standards as those used in the OR application. The standard configuration includes the advanced ventilation modes (volume and pressure controlled, pressure support and SIMV) that are especially needed for the care of premature infants, newborns, and ICU patients. A high-speed piston ventilator provides controlled compliance compensation, even with the longer ventilation tubes often used in the MRI environment, providing even for the smallest infant. Dräger also offers a range of MRI-compatible accessories, all tested and certified for use with the Fabius MRI machine.

Sunwings Vacation Better shows kick off launch of new 201920 product offering

first_imgTags: Events, Sunwing << Previous PostNext Post >> Posted by Thursday, May 2, 2019 Travelweek Group center_img Sunwing’s ‘Vacation Better’ shows kick off launch of new 2019/20 product offering TORONTO — Travel agents are the driving force behind much of Sunwing’s success and the company doesn’t forget it. “We truly do appreciate your support and we don’t take it for granted,” said Sunwing’s VP, Retail Sales Deana Murphy to cheers and applause at last night’s ‘Vacation Better’ roadshow.Deana Murphy, VP Retail Sales, SunwingAgents at the show were in a mood to celebrate – it was Travel Agent Day, after all – and Sunwing was one of many suppliers thanking agents with a special Travel Agent Day offer. For agents who missed the May 1 incentive, “there’s always a new promotion,” says Murphy. “It’s not about just one day of showing appreciation.”Sunwing’s STAR rewards program, with points that convert to cash, “is the best loyalty program in the industry,” says Murphy. “There’s no limit to what you can earn, no ceiling.” Sunwing has asked agents what they spend their STAR points cash on and the answers were sometimes surprising. While many agents put their earnings towards, not surprisingly, travel, others get creative. “One agent told us she uses it for stocking her wine fridge. Another told us she puts her earnings towards getting tattoos.”Travel agent Tanja Steinbock with her cheque for one million STAR points at last night’s ‘Vacation Better’ roadshow in Woodbridge, ONAgents at last’s night show, held at the Paramount event venue in Woodbridge, took part in a one-hour trade show followed by a sit-down dinner and presentation by Murphy and the team. The roadshows kicked off April 30 in London, ON and wrap up May 30 in Moncton. All in all some 5,000 agents will attend the Vacation Better roadshows across the country, along with reps from 55 suppliers.Nancy Drolet, Business Development, CTO at the Bahamas boothMurphy outlined highlights in the brand new 2019/2020 editions of the Sunwing and Signature Collection by Sunwing brochures.More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesThe largest and most comprehensive Sunwing brochure ever, the 2019/2020 edition includes the widest selection of top-rated resorts and excursions in over 55 popular vacation hotspots across the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America, including two new destinations, Tobago and Grenada.The brochure also features a number of new arrivals including Lopesan Costa Bavaro Resort, Spa & Casino and the Adults Only Club at Lopesan Costa Bavaro as well as Royalton Antigua Resort and Spa which will feature the first-ever overwater bungalows for Royalton Luxury Resorts.There are also several properties slated to open soon including Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Cancun and Royalton Grenada Resort and Spa.New for this year the brochure also includes hundreds of tips from Sunwing travel experts, from the inside scoop on the latest resorts and best rooms for families, to details about top Sunwing Experiences tours and excursions.Jeff Clauss, Director of Air Service Development & Marketing, St. Pete-Clearwater International with Universal Orlando’s Senior Manager – Canada, Beth FleetonMeanwhile the latest issue of the Signature Collection by Sunwing brochure features collections with seven leading resort chains, with exclusive perks and privileges when clients book their vacation at RIU Hotels & Resorts, Karisma Hotels & Resorts, Excellence Group, Hard Rock Hotels, Jewel Resorts, Krystal Hotels & Resorts and – new for this year – Palace Resorts.More news:  Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesWhen clients book their vacation packages to these leading resort chains with the Signature Collection by Sunwing, they can look forward to spa credits, 24-room service, free WiFi, VIP check in and more depending on the resort they select.At RIU Hotels & Resorts properties available through Sunwing, travellers can look forward to a host of exclusive RIU-topia and RIU Palace inclusions such as in-room liquor dispensers, unlimited reservation-free dining and, at RIU Palace Resorts, 24-hour room service, daily champagne breakfasts, pool waiter service and more.All smiles at the D.R. boothMurphy and Dave Wright, Sunwing’s Director of Sales, Ontario & Atlantic Canada tested agents’ knowledge about the brochures and Sunwing product with fun pop quizzes throughout the night, with questions on everything from family-friendly Smile Resorts (great for single parents with no single supplements) and adults-only Relax Resorts categories, to Groups perks and more.With Sunwing’s Groups bookings (‘All You Need is 10’) the perks include the chance to earn free travel, Platinum Club, bonus STAR points, the new ‘Book 10, Hold 20’ option, price matching, price guarantees and discounted deposits.“The more you book, the more you earn, the more you have to spend,” said Wright.
